1968 Ford F-100 Ascender

Heavy Duty Suspension

The chassis rides on a 3-link panhard bar front suspension and a 4-link rear suspension. All suspension links are machined from aluminum to handle the most punishing conditions. Oil-filled, threaded shocks soak up the bumps and give you a variety of pre-load settings.

LED Lights

Brilliant LEDs cast more than enough light for running at night without placing a huge current demand on the battery.

Metal Gear Transmission

In other vehicles, metal gear transmission is an upgrade. With the Ford F-100 Ascender, it comes standard.

Floating Battery Tray

The battery tray floats over the front axle and is designed to accept 96mm shorty packs. Placing the weight of the battery over the front axle gives the front tires extra traction when crawling over rocks and tackling steep inclines.

Heavy Duty CV Front Shafts

As with the rest of the drivetrain components, these have been designed to handle rugged terrain. They also allow up to 45 degrees of steering angle – more than most other trucks in this class.

Sticky Compound Interco Super Swamper TSL XS Tyres

The realistic drivetrain and suspension are complemented by licensed replicas of Interco Super Swamper® TSL SX tyres. Like the full-scale versions, their tread pattern and compound provide excellent grip at almost any angle.

Steel Ladder Frame Rails

Adjustable, stamped steel ladder frame rails set at a 290mm wheel base. The patented adjustable frame can be reconfigured for up to four different wheel bases to fit most scale crawler bodies.

Low Profile Axle Housings with One-Piece Metal Lockers

Thanks to the metal locker, the vehicle won't "diff" out when one wheel is under load. And because of its low profile, the locker and axle housing is smaller and provides more ground clearance.

Waterproof ESC, Receiver and Servo

Natural elements such as a creek, streams and mud will not affect the electronics.

60-Amp LiPo Compatible Waterproof ESC

The Ford F-100 Ascender is LiPo compatible right out of the box and has a crawler mode that provides sweet drag break for steep inclines.

Bind-N-Drive

Bind-N-Drive™ (BND) is a transmitter-less option for RC enthusiasts who already own a surface transmitter featuring Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM Technology. This money-saving innovation allows you to add a Bind-N-Drive vehicle to your collection without the extra cost or clutter of an extra transmitter.
